Athlon II x2 245 temperature

I overclocked my athlon II x2 245 from 2.9 to 3.4 no voltage increase. Stable while running Prime95.
Problem is it's sitting around 38-40C idle and around 52C load with stock hsf. Is that okay for this processor? Or should I back off a few hundred mhz?

    With stock those temperatures are alright. But whats your ambient temp, you should be a bit lower considering its a dual core. Also increasing the speed w/o increasing voltage won't affect temps.
  2. Ambient temp is around 22C. I guess it was the same heat even before I increased the fsb, although I didn't measure. Should I think about getting a new cpu hsf?

    If you want to overclock more i'd go for it.
  4. hello, i oc'd my amd athlon 64 ii X2 240 regor to 3.2 stock was 2.8 and my temp at full load is 65*c shoud i upgrade my fan its still stock? 46*c idle
  5. mines OC to 3.8GHz
    idle: 21*c
    load: 28*c
    no heat problems for me at all i can probably bump it to 4GHz ill try
    i am air cooling no water for me :)

  7. i have a amd athlon ii x2 245...
    instead of going into the bios i used the amd overdrive to overclock it and i got blue screen at 250 MHz
    i didnt want to push it too hard so i left it at 225 Mhz which gives around 3200 Mhz core speed and my temperature is sitting around 30 and 35 C
    can any1 tell me why is it he can overclock to 3.4 while i sit on 3.2? ><
